welcome back. good friday morning to you. computer giant, hewlett-packard, is denying reports, it spent tens of thousands of dom ars for dancers. scott, there were reports the dancers would show up at hp offices supposedly to inspire creativity. >> all it did was inspire justifiable anger, both with investors and hp workers who wondered why would someone waste money that way. it turns out they didn't. it wasn't true there are no dancers. the report ran on cnn's money website. the article said hp paid dancers $20,000 to show up unannounced and show tech workers some moves. hp investigated and found one
5:16 am
case of some dancers showing up during a charity drive in their idaho offices but nobody paid anybody for it. a company spokesperson says he saw the cnn article and said, have we lost our minds shall i thought to myself. well, no, we hadn't, because as it turns out, story wasn't true. meanwhile, over at yahoo! the chairman of the board is exiting stage right. fred am mer roe so came on board after it fired thompson for faking a resume. after a year, he is stepping down, because he did what he came to do, he got yahoo! back on the right track. let's check the markets with courtney reagan. good morning. hi, good morning to you, scott. futures are mixed after stocks faded late in the day again yesterday. still, the dow and nasdaq held on to gain. the nasdaq is having the es about the five-day win streak in

5:35 am
apparatus. huge safety haz jards fards for. >> at one point, firefighters thought they might need to make entry to rescue a woman and child who lives upstairs. they weren't at home at the time or they made it out on their own. the red cross is helping them with temporary housing. the fire department is still trying to figure that out. it should be noted, there was power to this building. the fire captain mentioned in that sound bite. it is not clear if there was an electrical problem that had to do with this going up in flames. 5:35. let's check in with meteorologist, christina loren talking about a hot weekend. >> oh, yes. it is going to be toasty around here. one of the hottest weekends of the year so far. you want to plan accordingly for that. you might want to make those beach plans or just get ready for the heat in your homes, closing the windows in your household a little bit early. you can see the live picture of san jose.

"today in the bay's" tracie potts is live on capitol hill with a look at what's in the works. good morning. if there is anything about this story you may remember, it will be this. unanimous consent. every single democrat and every single republican agreeing in the senate to shift some money around in the faa budget so those delays can go away. it is $253 million that has been set aside for airport improvements and other projects. couldn't be used for other purposes without congress getting involved. the senate approved it.
5:43 am
the house is expected to do so today. we don't know if it will be unanimous but it looks like the vote will pass. if that's the case, these air traffic controllers, 1500 a day who have been furloughed a day every other week, can get back on the job and get paid. that means more people in the tower. they can move more traffic, more flights in and out so you don't have to wait as long for that flight to take off. that's been the issue this week. it is a ptemporary fix. it comes as lawmakers are getting ready to board planes and head back home to their district. they are off next week. >> maybe that motivated them. it never hurts. 5:43. a bill aimed at legalizing sports betting in california has cleared another hurdle. state senate bill 190 just passed, allowing betting on most sports, except for college athletics. local universities, including stanford and the uc system asked the senate committee to drop the
